She is an activist, galvanizing action to end violence against women, but her story has never been a trending topic.

Women, everywhere, have had enough.
Enough of living with constant threat of violence, enough of being undervalued, enough of accepting patriarchal attitudes, enough of being disrespected because of their gender. That's why we #orangetheworld during #16days of activism. Have you joined yet?

"Child marriage is not a rare and unusual practice: it’s common, although now beginning to decrease on average globally. However, in times of crises, rates of child marriage can increase, such as in refugee camps, where marriage can seem to offer protection, stability and security," says Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. #HearMeToo #16days #orangetheworld

#MeToo has brought out the ugly face of violence into the light: the abuses of power that repress reporting and diminish the facts, and that exclude or crush opposition. This movement has also shown us that when our voices come together, we can affect change. We must keep up the momentum until nobody has to say #MeToo anymore.

Many women and girls who experience physical & sexual violence still lack access to quality multi-sectoral services. These services are essential as they provide needed support to survivors of violence, by keeping them safe, providing health care for their injuries, responding to their sexual and reproductive health needs, including provision of post-rape care and counselling, and facilitating their access to the police and justice system. #HearMeToo #16days #orangetheworld

1 in 3 women experience violence in their lifetime, across all social status, class, race, country or age group. Even 1 woman is too many. As #16days of activism continues, stand with survivors and activists who are saying #HearMeToo and help us #orangetheworld!
